American designer, who has long been entrusted with fashioning Team USA’s Olympics uniforms, has just revealed via sketches what is to be expected on our athletes at this summer’s London 2012 Olympics.
At least, what Team USA will be wearing for the Closing Ceremony at the Summer Olympic Games!
Polo by Ralph Lauren envisions Team USA in sporty if preppy red, white and blue uniforms emblazoned with “USA” as well as the Team USA logo on the right side and the well-known Polo logo on the left.
The American men's Closing Ceremony uniform includes white button-down sport shirts teamed with white pleated trousers, as well as knee length shorts accessorized with a necktie style silk striped belts in red, white and dark blue and a white cap. There is also a navy blue jumper available with “USA” in red and white on the chest.
The women's closing ceremony uniform teams a white button-down shirt with a red, white and blue Team USA logo on the left and the Polo logo in navy on the right, same as the men’s, with a knee-length skirt that also buttons down the front to create a shirt-dress look that can be buttoned all the way down or further up at the wearer’s discretion, belted with the same striped tie belt, which is also available in the same print as a silk scarf that can be tied at the neck.
Women also have the option of a navy blue or white polo shirt dress with short sleeves, and word has it that there is also a selection of more casual pieces to include mesh polo shirts, sweatshirts, tank tops and tunics.
As a heads up, the Team USA Opening Ceremony uniforms will be revealed sometime this summer prior to the Olympics which commence on July 27 in London.
Team USA merchandise, as always, is also available right now, with customizing options! As a reference, a “create your own” short sleeve Team USA polo shirt for women is currently retailing on the Ralph Lauren site for $145.00.
